Repair or Replace: The Furnace Edition

Installing a new furnace is a big investment, and you want to make sure you’ve squeezed every minute of life out of your old heating system before you purchase a new one. But how do you know when it’s time for your old system to go to furnace heaven and make way for a new, energy-efficient model? At Arctic Air Conditioning, we have your guide to deciding between repairing or replacing your furnace.

How to Decide Between Repairing & Replacing Your Furnace

Here are a few things you should consider when trying to decide whether to repair or replace your furnace:

The Age of Your Furnace

If you take care of your furnace and have it properly inspected each year, it’s very likely to last you approximately 10 – 15 years. That said, if you start to experience furnace problems after about a decade (including decreased performance, higher costs, and frequent breakdowns), you may save more in the long run by opting for a replacement—that way you can benefit from the energy savings of an efficient system.

Your Monthly Heating Costs

If you’ve had your furnace for a while and you’re starting to notice your heating bills have ticked up recently, first call Arctic for a furnace inspection. We can help you determine whether you need a furnace replacement, as well as how much money you could save with a new furnace. If the costs and savings add up, we’ll replace your furnace right away!

The Frequency & Cost of Repairs

As furnaces get older they start to need more frequent repairs, and this is especially true as they approach the last two or three years of their lives. If you find that you’re paying almost as much in repairs as you paid for the furnace in the first place, it means you’re probably due for a furnace replacement. 

The Overall Comfort of Your Home

This is a great indicator as to whether you should repair or replace your furnace. You just need to gauge the overall comfort of your home. Can your furnace reliably maintain the temperature set on your thermostat? Is your home heated evenly from room to room? If your furnace can’t manage these two things and it’s near 10 years old (or older), it’s time to replace your furnace. Otherwise, you can consult with one of our HVAC professionals to see what repairs can be made to improve your comfort.
